I posted on this subject a couple of weks ago. As you say, something for the torrent boys to be aware of.
See previous post and another MS reference here:
Then why must it phone home every 90 days? What could possibly change with your activation every 3 months. The more I think about it, the more I dislike it it. And just because we can opt out now, doesn't mean they won't shove it down our throat's in the future via a service pack or something else. My copy is legit and MS knows it already. That should be the end of it. 90% of W7 users won't know what is happening to their computers next week and that's what MS is hoping.Validation is just part of the process. MS does it automatically.
When a person installs Microsoft Security Essentials, it does a validation check to be sure the Windows 7 is a genuine install, that's all.
Microsoft is just doing a double-check of things, that's all.
Because the update is not to simply stop or deter people from using illegal copies of Windows. The main target (in my opinion) is to target counterfieters that sell PC's will illegal copies of Windows 7 installed.What is curious about this is that the process is voluntary, and you can remove the update if you wish. That's what Mr. Williams said in his report. If they are so serious about this issue, why announce to the world it's voluntary? Every pirate that has the least bit of intelligence will refuse the update, if they have read this report.
